Fossils are the petrified remains of plants or animals that died away millions of years ago that, over time, have turned into stones. Minerals, such as quartz, agate, jasper, etc. often mix with sediment that result in a fossil. Amber, Jet, Petrified Wood, Sand dollars, Fossils in Silt, and Ammonites are some examples of fossils.

Revered by many cultures for centuries, Fossils, because of their age, are often used as talismans for protection and long life. They are links to the past and, as such, can be helpful for past-life visualization, astral travel and increased knowledge of ancient ways.

Fossils are associated with the earth element, which can heighten one’s intuition, especially when learning about crystals.

Use Fossils around a home or at work to create a harmonious and organized atmosphere. They can teach us to be aware of the cycle of life and to embrace change with a feeling of security.

Physically, one can use Fossils to ease atrophied muscles; strengthen bones and help with disorders of the hands and feet.

  I’ve had this stone in my collection for years never knew what it was till NOW..... And here it is A Fossil...I found this article to be very informative .  (Submitted by: Holly D on November 01, 2020)
  A well-made and thorough article into fossils and fossiliferous stone, the only thing I would’ve added is the fact that it can turn into opal over time. thank you for aiding me and my understanding of the stones I use to make into pendant style talismans/amulets.6kh5p  (Submitted by: Collin Wright on February 04, 2018)
